Always 02:21
Sometimes 05:25
Sometimes it's all too much to take Sometimes everybody needs to find a way to take a break Because the world spins too fast and there's just no way to make the time last So babe, if I seem a bit detached It's not you; I just need some time alone to relax I find a quiet place in the woods outside of town I lean up against the tree when there's no-one else around My mind, it wanders and I watch the clouds roll free For an instant the world's only me... Sometimes if my soul is stretched too thin I get scared that maybe I'll never feel whole again So babe, please let's find a way I need you to know I'm coming back though I'm far away
Gone 03:56
Man: The sun shines, reflections off glass Through shimmers of light I strain my eyes Woman: We traveled the highways, always farther from home Hungry and tired, but never alone He promised his old life was left far behind I tried to believe him; I tried to be fine Man: I've been hiding for to outlast the footsteps of those close behind Both: My days, they're numbered; my hours are few Don't try to find me. I'll be gone just like you Man: We had each other, but not much of a life Desperate times for a man and his wife Woman: He got to changing right before my own eyes The man that I loved was a different kind Man: I'd been stealing, at first to survive But the day it all ended I took a man's life Both: Told him to give me all that he had Like a fool, he started to fight When she found out that I killed the poor lad Well she left me that night
The Ride 04:39
How long are the lies that we ride? Broken by the battle of our time Shadows of ourselves come to light I see myself walk the grey line Here we go, wandering mind Here we go, just riding the ride How far will we go for a lie? Enough to believe, don't have to try Pictures and poems blur meaning from words It all comes crashing down, these phantom worlds I'm waiting, waiting I'm waiting for it all to come clear I'm waiting, waiting I'm waiting for it all to disappear
